1992 BMW M3 E36

The replacement for the original M3 appeared at the 1992 Paris Auto Show. This E36 coupe model got the 3.0 straight-6 engine. Following the legacy of the E30 M3, the E36 falls short of the original intent for the series. Unlike the E30 M3 which was designed for competition purposes, the E36 M3 was developed as a road-going GT that lacked motor sport program.
